Tennis

This morning was an exciting morning. After line up Room7 hurried to the tennis court because Room7 was playing kiwi sports tennis. Our instructors name was Marcel. Room7 sat on the ground and Marcel was talking to us about tennis and how the tennis rackets and the balls are new and not to hit anything but the ball.

Marcel asked the girls to grab a tennis racket and a ball .I ran to get a ball and a tennis racket. Then I ran to the right side of the court. I was really excited to learn how to play tennis. The girls went to the right side of the courts and the boys went to the left. The instructor, Marcel said to put the racket on the ground and pick it up like a frying pan with four your four fingers on the bottom and your thumb on the top.

Marcel showed us a few warm ups, how to bounce the ball on the racket, and roll the ball side to side I thought it was easy. Marcel said, “ line up and get a partner” then we split the partner went to one side and the other went to the other side. One partner put the ball behind them and held the tennis racket the other had a ball. We then just bounce the ball and just hit the ball.

Later we got to play King of the Court. The people at each net lined up in one line. Marcel showed us how to play. The first one in line went to the other side and we played real tennis !.It was my first time play tennis. I was running from side to side. I had a lot of fun playing tennis for the first time.
